Lene's biggest tour of the 21st century started in Italy in December 2014 and continued into August 2015 in Portugal. In April, the band were back in Germany for the biggest tour there yet. Then more UK shows, culminating in Lene's grandest show yet at the esteemed and very large Islington Assembly Hall.
Lene's Halloween Extravaganza took place at London's Hill Station Cafe, starring the mythical Lene Lovich Band and featuring the legendary Penny Arcade, plus other sundry shenanigans.
Have a look at photographs from the tour; watch the new version of Lene's classic 1978 hit "Lucky Number", recorded live during the the tour:
Flex: album review
Lene Lovich in a wedding dress poses on the album cover for her Great Expectations role, and in this case the expectations are, generally speaking fulfilled. Flex,like Lene's increasingly elaborate wardrobe, is a work of many layers
Biography, July 2005
If you think Lene is only about Lucky Number and the roaring eighties, read on...
'Somewhere there is a parallel universe where Lene Lovich is a mega-star. An Icon. A thrilling, trilling, theatrical chanteuse and critically acclaimed artiste'.
Read the review of the March 2013 Winchester gig.
Just back from playing dates in Germany, France and Italy, The Lene Lovich Band played at the Hill Station Community Cafe in London, on Friday 18th July 2014.
The newly formed Lene Lovich Band made its live debut at London's 12 Bar Club on October 29th 2012, following this with a slot at the Drop Dead Festival, Berlin, Germany in November and gigs at venues throughout the UK and Germany during 2013.
The first ever digital releases of No Man's Land and March are now available to download in their remastered glory from Lene's Bandcamp page.
Thoughts on the recent European gigs
"Weird and wonderful moments included a beautiful private little gig in the German countryside, and being made to feel wonderfully at home at the Sonic Rock Solstice Festival, a space rock extravaganza in the middle of Wales. And then there was London... following on from last year's big gigs at Cargo and the Camden Underworld, we went small and returned to the scene of our live debut, the phantasmagorical 12 Bar Club, before discovering the intimate beauty of the Hill Station, south east London's best kept secret, an amazing reclaimed space next to St. Catherine's Church at the top of Telegraph Hill, and conveniently just around the corner from our new studio"
Lene is a director for the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (Peta) Foundation.

I couldn't possibly list my favorite novels or authors. I certainly couldn't list them in any order of merit Sometimes it's the story, and sometimes it's the way it's told, that makes the book special. Novels can be brilliant
Lene is a prolific and creative writer. Here is an excerpt from a piece of original fiction for you to enjoy.
